Onsales – as with the general public seating, tickets for most Kia Forum events are available the first day of sale to individuals with disabilities via the Kia Forum’s Disabled Services Department, Ticketmaster phones, and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets for concerts are not typically available for purchase at the Kia Forum Box Office on the first day of sale. After the first day of sale, remaining concert tickets will be available at the Box Office, in addition to Ticketmaster phones, Ticketmaster.com and the Kia Forum’s Disabled Services Department. If the first day of ticket sales falls on a weekend or holiday, the Disabled Services Department will sell tickets on the following business day. Please be advised that sale dates are subject to change.
Companion Seating – Individuals with disabilities may purchase up to three seats for companions in the accessible seating areas, provided such seats are available. Additional tickets, if available, may be purchased as close to the accessible seating areas, as long as it does not exceed the ticket limit for the event. Please note, for events or specific seating sections where ticket sales are limited to fewer than four tickets per patron, the same ticket restrictions will apply to the purchase of accessible seating.
Intended Use – Accessible seating is intended for use by an individual with a mobility disability or other disability who requires the accessible features of accessible seating due to a disability, and that individual’s companions. The Kia Forum reserves the right to investigate potential misuse of accessible seating and to take all appropriate action against individuals who fraudulently obtain tickets for accessible seating. While tickets for accessible seating legitimately purchased for the use of an individual with disability may be transferred to another individual under the same terms and conditions applicable to other tickets, in the event such ticket is transferred or sold to a non-disabled individual, the Kia Forum reserves the right to move the non-disabled individual to other seating.
ACCESSIBLE SEAT RELOCATIONS– The Kia Forum is pleased to provide fully integrated accessible seating for individuals with disabilities and their guests. Guests with disabilities are encouraged to purchase their seats from the various disabled seating options and ticket prices provided.
While we encourage our guests with disabilities to purchase directly with Disabled Services, guests who have purchased non-accessible tickets at the Kia Forum Box Office or through Ticketmaster and need the features of an accessible seat are invited to contact Disabled Services to request the exchange of their ticket, based on availability, for one that more appropriately meets their needs.
Disabled seating exchanges cannot be made for tickets purchased through other third parties, brokers or other sources.
All seating relocations are subject to availability and for some shows may be limited. The Kia Forum Disabled Services can be reached Monday through Friday from during normal business hours at 310-862-6200 option 4.
